The property itself was good but due to COVID, there were some problems for us. There was no housekeeping at all during our 3 night stay, we had to get extra towels and washcloths as we needed them, so we had a pile of dirty washcloths in our bathroom. No hot breakfast during the mornings, they had a grab and go breakfast which consisted of a banana, a granola bar, a honey bun and a bottle of water.

Thank you so much for your review.

The location of the hotel was not good. It was next door to the bus station, no restaurant near by which meant you had to take a uber to A restaurant which became costly. The seats needed updating in and around the common areas. The breakfast was not bad.
